    I'd take Fromm over all but Tua.

    94. Feleipe Franks, Florida

    [​IMG]Florida’s offense struggled mightily last season, but the entire unit is getting a fresh start under new coach Dan Mullen. The Gators averaged only 21 points in SEC contests last fall. Mullen should make better use of Florida’s talent, which includes development at the quarterback position. Franks led the offense with 1,438 yards and nine touchdowns, but he also tossed eight interceptions and completed just 54.6 percent of his throws in 2017. Franks is far from secure at the top of the depth chart. Incoming freshman Emory Jones and redshirt freshman Kyle Trask will push for the job in fall practice.

    1. Will Grier, West Virginia

    [​IMG]The Big 12’s unquestioned No. 1 quarterback resides in Morgantown this season. Grier – a Heisman candidate and a likely All-America pick – is at the controls of one of the nation’s top offenses. After sitting out 2016 due to transfer rules, Grier threw for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns in 11 appearances for West Virginia last fall. Additionally, the North Carolina native’s eight completions of 60 yards or more ranked third nationally among all FBS quarterbacks. Grier missed two full games due to a finger injury suffered against Texas on Nov. 18 but will be back at full strength for 2018.

    Jalen Hurts would thrive in Mullen's offense

    Ranking QBs before the season is much like Factor Analysis, essentially a form of Mental Masturbation. And it's even more idiotic for a Team Game like football, where at least 8-9 of 11 players must perform competently for any single play to succeed.

    Will be interesting to watch Fromm this year. I don't argue his talent in the least. But he may be put in more positions where he has to go win the game himself. No way a team loses a Chubb and a Michel without feeling it. (maybe 'Chubb' and 'feeling it' doesn't belong in the same sentence lol.)

    Rb is the easiest position to replace. If there are holes to run through, I’m sure they have someone who can run through them. They don’t need a first round pick at rb to be successful.

    UGA does a very good job of replacing RBs. Zamir White could be better than both Chubb and Michel. He was the #1 RB in the country last year and he's 6'1" 225. He's going to be a pain in the ass for the next couple of years.

    Not to mention De'andre Swift at 5'9" 215 he's a load too. He was #4 RB out of high school in Philly. Last year he averaged nearly 8 yards/carry for uga.

    PLUS evander holyfields kid, Elijah. The kid seems like an excellent kick/punt returner as he's very explosive. He's 5'11" 215. I don't think he's had alot of opportunity due to the guys in front of him.

    While not overly experienced their RBS have great talent. I agree that Fromm will probably be put in more high pressure situations in which he'll have to make some big plays but they're very talented on offense.
